PostgreSQL Server Programming

After quite a long journey, the latest PostgreSQL book by Packt is out the door. I’ve been involved in the publishing process before when I helped review Greg Smith’s “PostgreSQL 9.0 High Performance”  book which ended up being a pretty fun experience. That’s what my original role was on the “PostgreSQL Server Programming”, but due to some scheduling issues, I ended up taking on a much larger role.

The reason I originally got involved in the book is because I thought it filled a need that really didn’t exist. There was no PostgreSQL book, at least not based on a recent PostgreSQL version, that just targeted developers. Many PostgreSQL books would touch on things like writing functions and triggers, but they would be also include many operations and administrative topics as well. The “PostgreSQL Server Programming” book just focuses on topics geared for the developer. It starts at a high level with learning how to write functions with PL/pgSQL and digs all the way down to writing extensions in C.

    Bought it, looks great so far. I agree, this was a book that sorely needed writing.

    BTW, might want to clean up some of the code formatting: (smaller text, less space between lines, try to get all of the function to fit onto one page).

      Very nice first run, and definatly adds to the coerivstatnon. By the way, not sure if you saw this, but Simon Riggs posted a first cut implementation of synchronous pitr for Postgres 8.4, so we may soon have yet another method to add to the list.

    Aw, this was an exceptionally nice post. Taking the time and actual effort to make a good article…
    but what can I say… I put things off a lot and
    never seem to get anything done.

    Callaghan => As far as i know, postgresql does not do any loniggg for replication similar to what mysql does. Replication solutions for postgres are provided by programs external to postgresql which either use triggers for replication or there are middle wares which sit between the client and the server and run inserts on all machines and distribute selects on all machines.To answer your question – NO, i did not do anything for replication on postgres.

    Hi would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re working with?

    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different internet browsers and I must say this
    blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider at a fair price?
    Thanks, I appreciate it!
